Can't load linux to est8260

hi all,
I have succeeded in building a 2.4.18 linux kernel, but when i try to load it to the est8260 board it hangs for
some reasons. I am using u-boot 1.0.0 . the message i get is as follows:

=> bootm
## Booting image at 00400000 ...
   Image Name:   Linux 2.4.18
   Created:      2004-08-03  12:45:38 UTC
   Image Type:   PowerPC Linux Kernel Image (gzip compressed)
   Data Size:    490663 Bytes = 479.2 kB
   Load Address: 00000000
   Entry Point:  00000000
   Verifying Checksum ... OK
   Uncompressing Kernel Image ... OK

and then crashes. I used these commands to build the kernel:

$ make ARCH=ppc CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc-uclibc- est8260_config
$ make ARCH=ppc CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc-uclibc- oldconfig
$ make ARCH=ppc CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc-uclibc- clean dep
$ make ARCH=ppc CROSS_COMPILE=powerpc-uclibc- zImage

and then i used "mkimage" to build a uImage.

The "IMMR" value in the ppcboot.h is given as "0x0f000000", so i changed this value in the kernel configuration
to be the same, as well.
please anyone who has succeeded to load the kernel to an est8260 board can help me with this
thanx in advance
